Dear Comodo team,
since a week I encounter problems. I use CIS and have set up the firewall to protect me - ingoing rules are blocked via global rules, only certain programs may access internet. I use Windows 7 normally and sometimes Windows Vista also (installed both on one laptop), both 32bit. Windows7 is protected by CIS and Avast, Vista by GData Internet security. I use a router (wireless).
It started with svchost.exe trying to access internet via several ports, asking again and again. People from the German CIS forum told me this should not be, so I stopped it from the access. I downloaded a port scanner, Advanced Port Scanner 1.3 and it keeps telling me, ports 135, 139 and 1025 are opened. I tried to close those ports, still open. No firewall seems to work.
Also with pcflank.com I have made a stealth test and this one resulted in TCP NULL is not stealthed - both on Vista as well on 7 and also on the XP computer of my girlfriend.
Never mind what I try, CIS seems not to close the ports. I am about to get mad and hope somebody can help me... I definitely fear to be under attack with opened ports. Funny thing: when scanning with an external port scanner, the ports are displayed to be closed, but why tells the port scanner those ones are opened? And why do I still fail with the TCP NULL test?
